Fatigue and Durability Serivces

Who are Fatigue-Expert?

We are a group of consultants with a broad expertise in fatigue, durability, crack growth, fracture mechanics, materials behaviour, loads, stress analysis and failure investigations. This knowledge comes from over 35 years practice in these technologies both from a test and CAE perspective working with and for some of the leading global fatigue hardware and software technology companies. Our durability consultancy group came from the Alpha and Omega Business Consultancy organisation, hence the AΩBC reference in our logo.

Our broad experience has been developed whilst working for a wide range of industries including:

    ■ automotive,railway, trucks and other ground vehicles
    ■ aircraft and aerospace
    ■ oil and gas, and offshore renewable energy plant
    ■ general machinery such as packaging machines,
        domestic appliances, and recreational products
    ■ ship and marine structures
    ■ electronics, packaging and machines



About Fatigue Expert

A Thought ...

"Every stress analysis is really a fatigue analysis - the issue is just how many cycles!"

Maybe this is not always true but in our view the stressing is often not the end of the road for designers - the fatigue life is the critical issue.

Best practice for FE modelling for fatigue is vital ... and one of our key skills!  Remember fatigue is about local stresses and strains but stress concentrations need to be considered and handled carefully.

The skills of our fatigue experts have been proven many times in solving fatigue problems, helping companies improve their products, getting machines back in service, including getting a rail network back up and running after a fatigue failure led to block in use of rolling stock until a safety case was proven!

Our unique service has established our place in this industry. This allows us to make a distinctive and substantial impact for our clients, delivering to them excellent value and delighting then in the process.

OUR EXPERIENCE

Here is an overview of some of our previous projects and technical developments. Confidentiality is essential for our clients so details provided here are restricted - we are pleased to discuss your fatigue design issues in confidence.

Offshore tethered structure: Fatigue technical expert and lead fatigue engineer to a product development team. Fatigue assessment of the structure was carried out according to DNV-RP-C203 and Norsok standard N-004. Since Lloyds Register was the regulatory authority, BS 7608 was also consulted.

Aircraft wing fatigue assessment: F&DT analysis of components in the wings. This required the use of MathCAD, MS Excel and DAMTOL to carry out and report fatigue assessments.

Failure analysis of train couplings: Principal consultant to a railway company investigating fatigue failures in couplings which had led to a closedown of a rail system.

Boiler life extension assessment: Principal consultant on a life extension assessment which was part of a boiler re-fit project at a UK coal fired power station.

Aircraft propeller fatigue analysis: Lead consultant for an aircraft propeller automated life assessment system.

Frequency domain fatigue life prediction tool trials: Pioneered the use of vibration fatigue prediction technology and its application to aerospace and wind turbine components.

Fatigue analysis of FE stresses: Pioneered the development and use of fatigue life prediction tools for FEA.

Our Mission

Our mission is to provide industry with the best fatigue knowledge based on years of experience across a wide range of markets through on-site services using technical consultants, fatigue training classes and on-the-job fatigue training for engineers and managers.

These services embrace CAE and Test activities and the integration of both of these with product development process and targets.

Our goal is to delight our clients, delivering value and positive business experience on a win-win basis.

PHILOSOPHY

Our philosophy on engineering design is based around the concept that the functional requirement (in the context of Form-Fit-Function) is a key design driver and target. To ensure this target is met, especially when fatigue is concerned, there are 3 inputs that must be considered carefully and selected appropriately:

RESPONSIVE

One of Bootstrap 3's big points is responsiveness and Mobirise makes effective use of this by generating highly responsive website for you.

WEB FONTS

Google has a highly exhaustive list of fonts compiled into its web font platform and Mobirise makes it easy for you to use them on your website easily and freely.

UNLIMITED WEBSITES

Mobirise gives you the freedom to develop as many websites as you like given the fact that it is a desktop app.
